The Irish diaspora (legally defined as people of Irish nationality who habitually reside outside of the island of Ireland) is far reaching. It has been estimated that over 100,000,000 people worldwide claim that they have ancestors from Ireland. The Irish Potato Famine of the mid to late 1840s is just one of many watershed events that precipitated emigration.
